The Department of Territory and Municipal Services has said safety is of paramount importance.
“Experienced fire managers, supported by trained fire-fighters, will conduct the burning operations,” TAMS said in a statement.
“Temporary smoke cover may occur. Every effort is made to conduct the burns in weather conditions that will minimise the impact of smoke in the area.”
ACT Health said people with asthma and other chronic respiratory diseases should not perform vigorous exercise and should stay inside if affected by the smoke. People with asthma in particular should continue their medication and consult their general practitioner if they have any difficulties.
